My Hormone Haiku

 My Haiku

Hormones wreak
Havoc on the heart and mind
I need chocolate

Is that how you spell havoc? It didn't show up wrong in spell check, but you never know. It's been a day. A day where I feel all weepy, wonky, and annoyed. I decided to try and make myself laugh at the day instead. That's why I wrote that little haiku up above. It represents my day. Seems that Greg had a similar day. He just came home from work and showed me his pants. Apparently, first thing in the morning they split up the back. Can you imagine? I giggle just picturing it. Fortunately, he's the type of guy that would chuckle as soon as it happened. Still, it's a good representation of the day.

I've learned that sometimes you just have to go with your hormones.....or split pants. Accept and understand how you are feeling.....knowing that tomorrow will be a new day. Those around me are learning this coping mechanism, too. Greg just walked in the room with a bowl of soup.....I asked him to please go in the other room because right now the sound of someone eating soup would just about send me over the edge. Fortunately, he's the type of guy that also would chuckle at that.... and then leave the room.

Please don't judge me. It's just one of those days. It involved Capoiera teacher's not showing up, my car still stinking like vomit, and just all around feeling "off ".

Have you ever written a haiku?

Greg just dictated one to me.....

Pants split
Man swallows pride
Coffee

How do you deal with crazy hormone days?

Aw man, I'm so sorry you are having to deal with stinky hormone days. Isn't that the pits...thanks EVE, huh? I love the fact that Greg laughs it off...he's such a keeper! And hopefully the fact that I'll be seeing you OH SO SOON will lift your spirits, a tad???

This post made me laugh!!! But yuck to icky days. Thankfully, there is always a new one around the corner. And did you know, yesterday was "Blue Monday", which is officially the most depressing day of the year?!? Mmmhmmm. Well now it's won't be back for a whole year. ;)

I think you both have written beautiful Haikus! And that's a great way to deal with a bad day. :) Sorry things were 'off', hope you're back to feeling great, now! And that Greg's pants problem has been resolved. LOL

Hormones are the WORST! Simply the worst! I think my brain seriously doesn't function right when I am PMSing. Since I started working at the bank, I don't know how many times I end up making a mistake...when I am PMSing....all the other times...perfectly fine.

Trying not to laugh at the split pants.

Dark Chocolate.

It's how I deal with hormone days.
It's how I deal with sickness days.
It's how I deal with kids bickering days.
It's how I deal with foul weather, I have to go somewhere days.
It's how I deal with yogurt in their hair days.
It's how I deal with Mondays.
It's how I deal with Tuesdays.
It's how I deal with Wednesdays.
It's how I deal with days.

Say things I wish I would have kept as thoughts, then I am filled with guilt, then I try to make it better, then I may end it with a good cry on my own. Pray and know, I can start new once more. HUGS
